Paris Monuments

Remembrances of Things Past


Paris Monuments by Arrondissement

Paris Monuments are found throughout the City. The history of Paris is rich in events and personalities that have provided a multitude of opportunities for creating these remembrances of things past.

You will discover these reminders, great and small, from the grandeur of the Arc de Triomphe and the smaller Arc de Triomphe du Carrousel, to the simplicity of the plaques in the wall of the Tuileries Garden, commemorating the heroism of resistance fighters during the German occupation of Paris.

Paris Monuments can be found on almost any and every street. Attached onto buildings you will find plaques indicating that Jean-Paul Sartre lived there, that Pablo Picasso painted there or that Oscar Wilde died there, and so many others, many whom you've probably never even heard of before.

You may find yourself looking at such Paris attractions as the Colonne de Julliet in the Place de la Bastille, or the Conciergerie on the Ile de la Cité, imagining the events that have taken place there.

These many historical sites and monuments can provide a theme for your walks around Paris. For example, you can visit the sites of Roman ruins, such as the Arena of Lutece and the Roman Baths at the National Museum of the Middle Ages.

Visiting any of these monuments can be included to make a Walking Tour tailored to what you want to see. If you would like a Private Guide, use our Guided Tour Contact Page.
